“When we go out on to country with family and kids, we’d go for the whole day searching for honey ants. We’d move dead leaves and sticks in search of cracks in the earth’s crust. I’d find that crack in the ground and we started to dig, to move all that red earth to find those honey ants borrowing. They’d be nestled in the underground of tree roots which are very fragile. Those ants are hiding in their nests deep below but we dig down to find them and gather them to eat.”
